MC-414C LCR/Center Speaker

THIS PRODUCT HAS BEEN DISCONTINUED APRIL 2014

The MC Series boldly combines high quality components, great looks, value, and most importantly, incredible sound. Designed specifically for use as rear effects channels in surround sound systems, the MC-414C provides timbre-matched surround sound consistent with the high value the MC Series is known for. The MC-414C employs two 4-inch aluminum cone woofers and two 1-inch aluminum dome tweeters in a bi-polar configuration. The primary benefit of this design is the speaker’s ability to reproduce high performance surround channel information from a position which cannot easily be located by the ear. The MC-414C is easily installed on a wall using the integrated keyhole brackets. For all MC Series Speakers click here.

My path to a room full of RBH MC Speakers started with an acquisition of a pair of MC-4C and one MC-616C. I put them on an old Denon AVR-3803. While a bit aged, this receiver is a beast. It is also very smooth. How can a 4-inch driver make that sound? I would be content having these with a smallish subwoofer, huge sound. And the MC-616C was so punchy, beautiful midrange and a surprisingly smooth tweeter given its aluminum. I have had issues with metal tweeters from other brands. I also really enjoy the sound of a well designed acoustic suspension speaker. It was my first real speaker from British hands.

So a few months later, I have a pair of MC-6CT MKII a pair of MC-616C and the MC-4C running on the same Denon. The towers have the same meaty punchy low end, terrific soundstage. The specs say 40 Hz bottom, but it seems to have no need for a subwoofer. They are well suited with Jazz, organ, strings. When listening to Beck’s “Mourning Phase”, it’s like taking a bath in sound. While watching a western gunfight, the shots could be felt in your chest and other body parts we don’t speak of.

I spend my hours going back through my library again to hear the joyful sound these create. Kick all the other speakers in, and you hear an incredibly dynamic surround system that is very relevant even out of production.

I started my RBH journey with a pair of 816. Since then, I have acquired a dozen more, ranging from the CT Series to the Signature Reference Series, headphones, Bluetooth etc. There are no “stinkers” with these guys. Every other brand that I have owned had some crap line to avoid or a year that ownership or philosophy changed to “selfish profiteering”.

It’s obvious that there is a common principle at work in RBH Sound. It’s present in every product that I have owned thus far. I don’t believe they will put the RBH name on any product that’s mediocre. Every speaker design has comprises that have to be made to keep cost in control. RBH makes those compromises invisible due to sound, fit and finish of everything I have seen thus far.

A fan for good. -- Craig W.
